Default Potato Salad in Greek Salad

I picked up a Greek salad from Publix's deli this afternoon for lunch. I've had them before- they're pretty decent salads, and they cost $7.

Anyway, I open up my salad and bit into what I thought was a chunck of feta cheese. WRONG! It was an eggy chunk of potato salad... YUCK!

This was the type of potato salad:



Turns out the entire bottom of the salad was potato salad! I've NEVER seen anything like this before! I ended up just getting something from Panera, and the salad is going back to Publix. I called the store and the customer service girl was just as surprised to hear about it. lol.

Google shows me that there are restaurants in Tampa that add potato salad to their Greek salads, but I've never heard of it before now.

So... do you add potato salad to your Greek salads? Poll to follow!

I don't and there is one place here that does, but I always request that it not be added. It just makes no sense to me!

My face is so horrified right now.

No, I do not add potato salad to my greek salad - actual greek salad or what everything here, including greek restaurants, service - iceberg lettuce with feta cheese and black olives in it???

Yep, it was a typical run of the mill Greek salad (lettuce, tomato, feta, olives, onions, peperoncini)- or so I thought! The label covered up the potato salad. I've bought this salad before from Publix and it was potato salad free, so I'm not sure if someone in the deli felt bored and creative this morning

We need another poll option: I don't like either Greek Salad or Potato Salad

I know! I totally expected delicious feta, and it was such a WTF experience.

It was like when you take a sip of soda expecting it to be Dr. Pepper and it's actually Coke... but this was way worse.

I kinda figure if you get a salad at a grocery deli you pretty much get what you get and shouldn't expect anything real, unless it's at a bar and you make it yourself.

It's like going to Taco Bell to get Mexican food.

Uh, not really. Publix actually has pretty decent pre-made foods, including salads and wraps. They make them fresh every day with the items they sell. I've never had anything weird like this up until now.

*shrugs* our grocery store deli makes a plethora of salads daily, and most of them are all fresh ingredients and easily identifiable foods.
